Jenn-Air built-in ovens are designed with many advanced features to improve the ease and quality of cooking and baking, such as LCD touchscreen controls and self-cleaning modes. However, Jenn-Air ovens also have been reported to be much less reliable than standard ovens by many owners.
While the precise features of a Jenn-Air built-in oven vary from model to model, Jenn-Air is well-known for integrating the most advanced cooking features possible into its products. For example, the JJW2530WS oven features an LCD touchscreen that offers advice on the best selections for cooking a particular meal. It can also save user-defined presets so that a user can quickly select settings that have worked well for cooking a particular dish in the past. Like many Jenn-Air models, this oven also features a self-cleaning mode and a hidden baking element to improve the attractiveness and ease of cleaning of the oven's interior.
Unfortunately, many Jenn-Air wall ovens are high maintenance, according to Consumer Affairs. Problems with Jenn-Air ovens not turning on, maintaining correct temperatures or closing correctly are common, according to a few owners. Some owners have even reported that the front glass in the oven exploded while the oven was running in self-cleaning mode.
